~ Greetings ~
Thank you for taking interest in Christ Lutheran Church. I introduce myself as this faith community’s Interim Senior Pastor serving in this time of transition in Lake Elmo. I come to Christ Lutheran having served the church in the Twin Cities for the past 30+ years in a variety of ways; as an urban youth worker, educator, community partnership builder, campus pastor, settled pastor and as interim pastor.
Most importantly, in all of these places I make sure the doors are open, the lights are on and the engine is running! These varieties of leadership positions have developed my skills and sharpened my passion for creative collaboration and mission redevelopment. I look forward to new expressions of bold and faithful ministry in every place I am called.
I live in Stillwater along with my creative, insightful and courageous wife, Lauren, and our three teenage/adult children. A rescue dog and cat complete our family. My wife, Lauren serves as pastor at Roseville Lutheran Church, so we both found work in a vocation that invites us to love people and help them heal and know Jesus.
Most importantly, I have single-handedly contributed to the financial success of Dunn Brothers, Starbucks and Caribou coffee shops!
“Live the life worthy of the calling to which you’ve been called.”
